Wordful Wednesday: A Poem on Birth

Birth poem.pngBirth


In a cosmic instant

New life bursts forth.

One journey folds, giving way

To the next one.


Moment by unstoppable moment.


Pain and fear,

Scars and wounds


Even if temporarily,

To joy.


In that cosmic instant

All else is suspended.

It is simply


Greeting new life.


It will become a story to tell (mine)

It is a story that’s just begun (ours)

And a future story (hers)

That doesn’t belong to me at all.


For now, we bask together—

Still connected,

Though separate.

Two beings

Linked to each other through the same cells

Ready to begin.
